is at work. everybody is on this. in that kind of an environment with a large city like this, large police department, obviously the first responders on the scene are race volunteers, runners themselves, passersby. and emts. how does it work practically to have the foeb in charge? the n fbi is coordinating it. what does that mean when they're dealing with a large sort of resources. >> first of all, new in being a real attack is not new to the city of boston, the state of massachusetts and the federal authorities up there. back in 2011, just over two years ago, and previously before that the federal government in conjunction with boston did exercises exactly to prepare for situations like this. so what you have is the immediate response is always going to be governed by the boston police department and fire department. and then over team there will be a transition to the fbi. but most importantly, this has to be done hand in hand. the state, local and federal cooperation, this isn't honestly like the movies, where the fbi shows up and says we're in charge now. the relationship between the f

. it was also a test of the media and many outlets failed. it was a chaotic environment where information was at a premium because the nation was scared and needing to know if the danger was ongoing and where it had come from and thus how to contextualize it. in those moments the egoes of media people come out wanting to show how connected we are, that we can get the information first or how smart we are we can make the big assertion first. in environments like that when the public and authorities are in a mob mode yelling for a body to attack, media must take extra care to not stoke the wrong flames or tell people of bombs, or connections to foreign terror groups that aren't real. in these moments we risk yelling fire in a crowded theater because incorrect information can cause a dangerous stampede toward an innocent person or group of people or sew fear that makes us think the world is more dangerous than it actually is. there is a desire within media to be first with big news, with developments that mark the closing of a chapter, with items that will change how swirn seve sees and repo
the environment or concentrated enough to conclude it kwame from the bomb? >> i think they came from the bomb but i cannot be sure. >> how many amputations have you performed and how many more are planned? >> at this point if i have my numbers right, we have performed four amputations and there are two more limb that is are at risk but i hope that we'll save those legs. >> are they in what you would call critical condition or stable? are they in intensive care? >> yes, they are in the intensive care. they're in critical condition. but at this point, we have stabilize their vital signs and hemodynamic situation is under control. >> what are the injuries? can you describe what's placed them in critical condition? >> lower extremity, major injuries. and from these injuries, they bled a lot. we control the bleeding rather rapidly but certainly they lost a lot of blood and caused physiological problems. >> do you have foreign nationals? can you give us an idea about the nationality of the people you are treating? >> as far as i know all of them are americans. >> can you tell us an age range, docto
and this guy, 19 years old, on the run and in an environment he doesn't know with just the shoes on his feet maybe has been able to elude. now, that's probably very lucky on his part but law enforcement sitting there right now with their fingers crossed hoping he's still in the area because they may not know where to look next, al. >> that's my point, james. lucky for him maybe. hopefully he doesn't have that luck. but scary for others. i mean, i'm an early riser. i wake up early this morning, 5:00 a.m., in the middle of the night both of them have been caught, one's dead, the other's at large, there's no way i would believe that at nightfall the next day he would still be at large. what could be the possible scenarios? i hear when clint or don say that he is maybe somewhere and came home from work but they were on lockdown. people didn't go to work. so what could be a scenario to comfort me if i'm a citizen in watertown? >> that's right, reverend al. i don't think we can give you total comfort. the superintendent laid out the reason it happened. he was clear, they had a tremendous shootout,
in a civilian environment, it looks huge, but can we get a perspective on the size and power of the bomb? how we might compare to to those in a war zone, ieds or military ordnance? >> that's the analysis going on now. the people i've talked to who are doing that seat of the pants comparison say it's not huge. of course, it does look huge. over 100 people injured, that seems frightening. it is, but they were right around it, they were very close to it, crowded around, which you assume is the reason the devices were placed there. it does seem they were intended to cause a maximum amount of casualties, injuries and deaths. where they were placed, when they were placed, and how they were constructed with the additional shrapnel to amp up the injuries. >> pete, over the course of the day, obviously you get a lot of conflicting reports, some of which are not true, but we heard at least some tentative reports about the strategic placement of the devices, whether they might have been put in trash cans or mailboxes or parcels leaned up against the building. do we have anything firm on that? >> no. we're
if it was placed there intentionally or part of the environment. >> do you think the people that are in critical condition, they are okay? >> they are not looking okay. it's not what critical means. so, it's really too early to say. >> how long will it take before this process will be critical within hours? >> a number of patients require repeat operations tomorrow and serial operations over the next couple days. a lot of the injuries are combined. they are combined with soft tissue and vascular. they have to be approached in a different factor. >> how about eardrums? are you seeing shattered eardrums? >> we have seen at least one. it's not uncommon with a blast injury. one of the things on my to-do list for tonight for me and the residents is go back around, it can be hard if people are being rushed to the operating room to get examed, to repeat the exams. >> can you give us more information on the hometown? >> no, i'm sorry, i can't. [ inaudible ] >> can you talk about how many will here? >> i can't tell you a previce number. [ inaudible question ] >> i don't know. >> can you give us an age ra
or placed there intentionally or part of the environment. >> do you think that most people are critical at this point? [ inaudible ] it's really too early to say. >> how long will this process continue to be critical? hours? >> the younger patients will require operations tomorrow and serial operations over days. a lot of the injuries are soft tissue and vascular injuries and they have to be approached in kind of step-by-step. >> how about ear drums, are you seeing any shattered ear drums? >> we have seen at least one. for me and the residents to actually go right back around, particularly the people, in the operating room to get a good exam. >> can you give us more information on ages, hometowns? >> no, i'm sorry, i can't, actually. >> can you talk about the amput amputees, how many? >> i can't. i mean, a couple. [ question inaudible ] >> i don't know. there were no pediatric patients. the old evidence person i took care of was 71. >> you're a surgeon but still -- >> i mean, it's just depressing. we see accidents all the time, it's just depressing. >> in the course of your career, have
something? >> well, again, in that environment, you can wear a hat, a hood, sunglasses. but this person is likely one minded. they wanted to get in, plant the devices and be gone. even though they may be trying to duck and hide from cameras that are on the wall, there will be cameras in banks, convenience stores and thousands of people with iphones and a devices taking pictures. that's why law enforcement is at airports, bus terminals, train stations, asking people if you have pictures, especially taken directly before the explosion. share those with law enforcement. the bomber's picture is there. we just have to pick it out among the thousands of pictures that exist. >> all right. thank you for your time. still ahead, another live report from boston on the ground where the investigation stands right now. plus, we have new video coming in of the bombing of the point of view of a runner. we'll show you that video. er ] s joe woods' first day of work. and his new boss told him two things -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from bu
we can eliminate other factors which may have already been present in the environment. in fact, we won't know with some certainty until the laboratory completes its final review. away from the scene, yesterday afternoon, the jttf began its investigation. immediately after the bombing, the fbi initiated a command post. those assigned to the jttf, intelligence analysts and other personnel from every state, local and federal government agency associated with the jttf, and many others on their own, including boston pd and mass state police, more than 1,000 law enforcement officers across many agencies had been assigned to this investigation via the command post. they began canvassing sources, reviewing government and public source databases and conducting interviews with eyewitnesss and others to determine who was responsible for this crime. we are doing this methodically, carefully, yet with a sense of urgency. all across the nation and around the world, the force of the united states is working hard to locate those responsible. already the fbi has received more than 2,000 tips as of
they've imposed this really a unpresdenned security environment in the boston area this morning. >> is it a new threat that they're trying to figure out? is that -- a new threat come in in the last few hours and that's what explains it or just finding this third relative or potentially? >> yeah, i'm not sure that i'd call them a threat. just a concern that they may have had accomplices and whether those accomplices have made threats, i don't know. but i believe that's the -- i believe that's part of the answer why they're concerned here. although i have to point out, we heard conflicting information about this. but several people who are in a position to know and are good sources say that that is the concern. now, as for the two brothers. i think you've discussed this some. the family came to the u.s., we're told, in 2002 or 2003 and claimed asylum. the father had been some kind of public official in either chechnya or kyrgyzstan. either a prosecutor or a police officer. so, the brothers have been here for a decade. one was born in russia. one is born in kyrgyzstan. and, so, the
yan. tla there's been tough military action. you flee that environment. you come into the united states. you go to school. you get a scholarship. you have friends. but somewhere in that leadened, deadened heart, head of yours, it's still not good enough. there is a cause that's more important, not survival, and i'm not sure we'll ever be able to comprehend that. we need to try because it may give us potential to identify other people. here we have a rather remarkable journey these two young men took. a journey literally millions have taken. and they've contributed to the united states. their contribution was death and destruction. of innocent people. we may never understand, rationalize, how. >> as you reference the uncle who pleaded with his nephew, dzhokhar, give yourself up, give yourself up. and of course that is the fervent wish of law enforcement officials for a number of reasons. one is for the survival of dzhokhar tsarnaev because there is a manhunt for him and he will not escape that network of law enforcement at some point. this will not come to a good end. but also fro
right now. anybody part of that effort who has a capability to engage in a close environment like this certainly is going to be deployed. there could be explosives. you have to assume if there is this individual here, tsarnaev is held up, he may have additional explosives with him. he may be armed with semiautomatic or pistols. you have to assume the whole broad range of force capability. he might have at his disposal. >> don't forget, this is a 19-year-old young man who was really falling the lead, we believe, from all reports of his older brother. his older brother rather than being captured was throwing devices, explosives at authorities and had an ied strapped to him. so they are expecting the worst here. >> and also his desperation would be multiplied by the fact that he has knowledge that he ran over his brother as he escaped and the fact that he had anything to do with the killing of his brother is unimaginable. >> right. >> and now he's alone. obviously guilt-ridden. terrified. >> exhausted. >> yep. >> he may be injured. since monday you can't believe this individual has h
this respect, that watertown is a very, very easy going, very community type of environment. and this community with solidarity and people embracing one another, then dead ghost nothing. residents were frightened and stuck within their homes and didn't have the opportunity to go out and find out except for expressions from people like yourself. >> what is it like to be holed up in your home, unsure if someone is hiding in your basement or backyard. whether somebody is using you as a cover for their attempts to allude authorities. >> i noticed a number of police and military going to homes. >> did they enter your home? >> they did enter my home. >> explain that. what was it like? >> they knocked on the door and explained they were obviously looking for the suspect and with like it check out all of the residence. they checked about 200 different homes. >> right. but specifically your home. >> right. >> how reluctant for to you even open the door? >> not very. because of the situation that happened monday. the citizens of this community embraced the police and the fbi and other members of law enfo
town environment of boston. >> you really couldn't believe it. certainly an eerie sight, alex. yesterday the streets of boston should have been teeming with commuters. there should have been tourists. there should have been people outside enjoying the weather. but instead they were hunkered down. they were staying inside, heeding orders that there was a terrorist, potentially on the loose. about 1 million people ordered to stay inside. to lock their doors. boston and its surrounding suburbs were virtually under siege. a lockdown in the suburbs, a shelter in place order for the city. >> we're asking people to shelter in place. in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked, and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer. >> reporter: it was early friday morning when dzhokhar tsarnaev escaped a police shoot-out in watertown. forcing officials to shut down a 20-block radius, and demanding residents stay indoors for their own safety. >> i've just never seen it this way. i mean, even in the latest hours at night it's never this
of environment for security exchange to not be politicized sooner or later. we know what's going on in check nia. our fbi, our c.i.a. know what's going on in chechnya. when they get information from the russian service, they should look at that information and decide does it actually give them any leads in terms of intelligence inside the united states of america. but they should be reminded where the information is coming from. >> really wonderful insights, thank you very much, thanks, bruce reidel. >>> next in the daily fix, the boston bomb's impact on immigration debate here at home. that perfect spot. a special place we go to smooth out the ripples of the day. it might be off a dock or on a boat. upstream or in the middle of nowhere. wherever it may be, casting a line in the clear, fresh waters of michigan lets us leave anything weighing us down back on shore. our perfect spot is calling. our perfect spot is pure michigan. your trip begins at michigan.org. olay ultra moisture body wash can with more moisturizers than seven bottles of the leading body wash. with ultra moisture your body wash
, or in a lot of the cases, martin, especially in the post-9/11 environment, you have an individual that essentially self-motivates, self-recruits. typically they're self-motivated in recruit, go on their vision quest. in this case, again, hypothetically, he had the time, if not the opportunity to link up. >> six months. >> right. it will be absolutely compelling and critical to find out if there was a linkup, the degree if training and probably most importantly here, was he tasked and dispatched like the times square bomber? >> thanks so much. >> my pleasure. >>> coming up, where should dzhokhar tsarnaev be tried? >>> and why is senator lindsey graham upset at the nation? stay with us. >>> i believe our nation is at war. the enemy is radical islam, the taliban, al qaeda and affiliated groups. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my he
this extraordinary security environment here in boston and the suburbs. understandable why in water where they believe that he may be holed up. that explains the situation around there. they think they know where he is, but not positive. there is a concern for the last couple of hours that he and his brother may have had accomplices and those accomplices may be at large and could be dangerous. this morning authorities found and disarmed another bomb in the boston area. i say another bomb. i mean a bomb today in the boston area. there is a concern about whether there could be other devices. you put all of those factorsing to and that's the explanation for the unprecedentedly strict security in boston and the suburbs right now. >> when you talk about the motivation and their state of mind and why they did what they did including the attempted robbery of that 7-11, you have got more information on the carjacking that occurred. they took a man at gunpoint for about a half hour. >> right. after the robbery of the 7-11 and after shooting the campus policemen. they carjack and got an suv and hel
words of calm. a day later, how is this sinking in? >> well, i think obviously the city, the environment around the city is still in a state of shock. the city will not be business as usual today. many of the streets around us you can see have been closed off, back bay, the entire area of the finish line is closed off and shut down. but like any city like new york, after september 11th, like any city in this country, people are resilient, we'll go on. >> yesterday was a special day for people outside of boston, can you explain? >> oh, joe. >> you know, the sox play, it's a holiday in boston, actually. >> it's a holiday. >> the sox play in the afternoon. you were there with your son. >> it's a traditional holiday. it's perhaps the greatest day for the city during the course of the year. it's a day when the entire city wears a smile. it's a day when hundreds of thousands of people arrive here from literally around the globe and certainly around the nation to run, first, in the boston marathon, 26 miles in massachusetts, to the boylston finish line. the game concludes just as the middle of
harsh, but is there a sense you put yourself in that environment enough that you are on borrowed time. the odds are such that you get hit anywhere, at any time. >> yeah. there vicious people and you care deeply about the world and they put their lives at risk. i got out. within the hour, i decided i had too many close calls. >> quickly. >> within an hour. you have to leave before you lose all your money. >> sebastian, which way is the frontline from here on hbo tomorrow at 8:00. thank you. we are going to make a move to breaking news on the boston medical center. dr. peter burke is talking to the press about the condition of the victims that are being treated there. . >> their lungs are not working and heart is not working and depending on what you bring to the table, that can be different. >> [inaudible]. >> not that i'm aware of. i'm sure it's available. the general process when you remove things from people we send them to the pathologist. that's the process. they will be available, i assume. we are talking about fragments taken out of the victims in this case. >> [inaudible]. . >>
out. and the work that brady has just been doing in the context of this environment that just refuses to budge is astonishing. but i think you're right. the people have got to move in order to make accountable. >> but you raise something about the obama thing that has to be talked about. >> yes. my folks are like do not let michael speak! there is not enough time! we are not done. stay with us. aaah! aaaaah! theres a guy on the window! do something, dad! aaaah! aaaah! what is happening? they're rate suckers. their bad driving makes car insurance more expensive for the rest of us. good thing there's snapshot from progressive. snap it in and get a discount based on your good driving. stop paying for rate suckers. try snapshot free at progressive.com. u ush. >>> maybe you heard that a mississippi resident was arrested for sending ricin laced letters to the president and a republican senator. perhaps you heard about the explosion in a fertilizer plant that killed 14 people. but it was genuinely difficult to get news on anything other than boston this week. and here are a few of the things
